Man of the Match

Ends by saying that the fans have been fantastic, and it was good to see a lot of support for them here.

Presentation Time...
Not much to say about the bowling effort of the USA as they have taken a pelting at the hands of the home team here. Harmeet Singh picked up the only wicket that fell, but they did not have any answer to the onslaught from Shai Hope who smashed it all around the park. Earlier in the game, the USA posted a below-par score. Andries Gous top-scored with 29 while a few batters chipped in with some cameos. Roston Chase and Andre Russell both picked up three wickets each while Alzarri Joseph got two and Gudakesh Motie chipped in with one as well.
West Indies knew that they not only needed to win but also to chase this down quickly to improve their NRR. Johnson Charles struggled once again but Shai Hope was absolutely superb in the Powerplay and made sure that they fully utilized the field restrictions. He registered one of the fastest fifties in this World Cup, but Charles holed out trying to up the ante. Nicholas Pooran joined in and continued to attack as they didn't really have any other option. Both of them went hammer and tons and finished the game off in a blink of an eye. Hope remained unbeaten on 82 off just 39 balls and fittingly hit the winning runs as they chased this total down with just over 9 overs left.
WEST INDIES KEEPS THEIR WORLD CUP HOPES ALIVE! They have done it in some style as well thrashing the USA here in Barbados. The fans have got their money's worth to see their home team perform in this manner. The Windies have also improved their NRR above South Africa which boosts their chances further given that they beat the Proteas in the next game.
